ALL athletes participating in the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics SHOULD understand that the mere act of attending the games lends legitimacy to the epidemic of human rights abuses in Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Tibet and elsewhere in China. They themselves will hold responsibilty for future abuses by tacitly endorsing current ones.

Boycott these Olympic games and then Boycott the entire nation of China. No trade, no travel, no negotiations. Starve the communist regime out and turn their own people against them.
